List on page 1 updated to read:

59.) Precision Cartridge Inc - 100g -RNFP - frangible

The Graf & Sons website said this was a 110gr load but the box says 100gr. I checked Precision Cartridge Incs website and it says 100g also. Graf also had their 125g FMJ listed as 124g....

Had to put the
** - no longer manufactured
on 8.) Collins Cartridge Co. - 125g - FMJ (RL)
& 57.) Precision Ammunition - 125g - JHP

as I no longer see 357 Sig listed on the Collins website and don't see any caliber of Precision Cartridge listed anywhere.....

Got an e-mail from Right to Bear Ammo -
We still have not started a run of .357 SIG, and it doesn’t look like we will anytime soon—the demand for other calibers is extremely high and not leaving us any time. I have refunded your card today for the full amount. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Please let me know if I can help you with anything else.


You mean people buy stuff besides 357 sig?? This puts me on pause at 84 loads...

Got another load coming!! This one is from Sillman Cartridge Company- it is a a 147g - FMJ. I could round the list up to 90 pretty quickly BUT.... I never add to the list unless I actually have physical possession of a box of the ammo, and I have had some financial limitations lately (I hate cars!) Anyway, I will update the list soon hopefully!!

Have you shot every single load you've bought?

It'd be cool to see a pic of 89 boxes arranged in a 3, 5 and 7 or something (or even a 3, 5, and 5)

I have shot 68 of them so far. I did start saving the empty boxes after several brands went away, so I have the packaging for almost all of them. Taking some photos sounds like a great idea. I don't have a nice camera so I will try to wrangle one of the kids to try it. Maybe a youtube video would better. I could be a 357sig version of Hickok45

I need to retire so I can devote more time to this!! I have found that, for the most part, the premium loads are reliable and accurate. My guess is that most of them would perform very well with penetration and expansion.. I have targeted a few pumpkins using premium loadings with impressive results!!

It's been a while but...some more loads coming!! These four will be from Parabellum Research. They will be 125g loadings in JHP and FMJ in their value line and their premium line. Hopefully, in a couple of weeks, the list will be up to 89.

Two more loads coming!!! Both LaserMatch tracer ammo as seen here - a 124gr FMJ STRV (standard range visible tracer) and a 124gr FMJ ERVT (extended range visible tracer). When everything arrives, I will have eclipsed 90 loads!!

And this from someone with the dreaded devil's post count! (LOL) I'll see what I can do. I will definitely do a twilight shoot!!

AND six more loads coming from Load-X ammunition - a mix of JHPs, FMJs, Frangible..... new manufacture and factory reloads. As usual, I will not add anything to the list until I have the box of ammo in hand. BUT, if everything comes in, the list will be up to 97!!! Years ago, I thought adding the hundredth load would be like finding unobtainium!!! Now I'm getting close!

Has anyone mentioned the Double Tap 80 grain Barnes TAC-XP?
TOP GUNS *357 Sig* Club

TOP GUNS *357 Sig* Club
As for the 125s.

DT does load the 125 grain .357 SIG load with the Sierra bullet.
TOP GUNS *357 Sig* Club
No huge deal if you look at the comparable Cor-Bon 125 with the same bullet.

I guess if you want the Gold Dot, you should really be buying the Speer brand
these days, or at least I would.

My thinking is that even though the Gold Dot has proven to be a great performer
in most calibers, and especially in .357 SIG.

There are newer bullets these days that perform even better.

These would be the Hornady FTX and the Barnes TAC-XP or X bullet as loaded
by many companies.

I wonder of the Tac-XP from Black Hills will be offered in .357 SIG soon?
